Q. I have been searching high and low for a pillow that is supposed to deodorize gas. You sit on it and something inside the cushion traps offensive odors. If you’ve written about this product, please give me the particulars.
A. Activated charcoal has long been used to trap noxious gasses and chemicals. It is used in gas masks and has been used orally to treat accidental poisoning. Activated charcoal capsules are also marketed to alleviate flatulence.
We are aware of two seat cushions that fit the description you have given. Both contain activated charcoal to trap odors. One, called the Flatulence Filter, is made by UltraTech Products of Houston TX, at (800) 316-8668. The other is called GasBGon and sold by Dairiair of Greenville, NC, at (877) 427-2466.
